Our new cat Isolation Unit will arrive this Spring. We need to raise funds to make it comfortable and secure for our poorly feline residents

Project by RSPCA Suffolk Central branch

At any one time we can house up to 60 cats. Today, 47% of the animals in our care are cats, meaning they make up the highest proportion of animals we assist each year.

On average a new cat arrives every two days. In most cases, we have little knowledge of the new arrival’s health, so precautions are taken to avoid spreading disease to our resident cat population by housing them in our cat Isolation Unit until they receive a clean bill of health.

We have secured funding for a new building, but we now need to raise funds to furnish the individual pens and exercise areas with all the essentials such as bowls, beds to keep our cats comfortable, and scratch posts and toys to keep them enriched during their stay.

The Unit will have its own kitchen and laundry room, so we need funds to fit this out with cupboards, cleaning equipment and washing facilities including a  dedicated washing machine to help avoid any cross contamination.

Some recent residents of our Isolation Unit have stayed for as long as six weeks, such as AJ and Jordan, feral kittens that were brought into the centre with ringworm; or elderly Harold  who'd hurt his hip and needed long-term cage rest, so providing a calm and comfortable pod is essential.


And, as you'll see in our video, the beautiful Marley and Poppy are fully recovered from their cat flu symptoms and ready for their new home.

If you are able to help us we will be very grateful and so will ALL our cats!
